When you try to host a dinner party for guests or for family, the right dinnerware goes a long way in setting up the mood. Of course, it is also one of the rare occasions when you break out the good dinnerware and spice boxes that everyone admires. In order to set up a beautiful table, you might choose expensive porcelain or china, or just go ahead and choose affordable alternatives that seem to look like it at least. Corelle Dinnerware – let us tell you, gives you all the benefits that china can give you without all that expense.
When you look for dinnerware that lies within your budget then you need to consider some important points. Things like appearance, durability, storage, ease of cleaning, etc. all come into play really. When you have considered all that then you can look at the wide variety of patterns that Corelle offers and the plethora of choices can finally give you exactly what you have been looking for. Some of the things that have really worked in Corelle’s favor include its durable quality, its affordable pricing and the fact that it looks like absolute beauty on the dinner table. – so much so that anyone who enjoys entertaining friends and family must own a Corelle dinner set.
It is a well-known fact that beautiful dinnerware is capable of making a meal look elegant and inviting, elevating the entire experience. Fine china was first made from a white powder that was discovered in Kao-ling and then later went on to be found in England. In Essex, the powder of a porcelain factory decided to add bone ash to the white powder, and hence, bone china came into existence. Corelle Dinnerware is made of q glass composition called Vitrelle and mimics the appearance of fine china. Created by the famed company Corning (who are best known for their iconic CorningWare), the process is a unique one, that thermally bonds layers of clear glass to a white or beige core, with each latter being lightweight, thin and stackable
When looking for the best kind of dinnerware set, you want one which not only lasts for a long time but also looks good while lasting. Of course, fine china can manage to retain its beauty for many years, however, it does not match the durability of a Corelle Dinner Set. A few advantages of Vitrelle, include it being resistant to chipping, cracking, or breaking, having said that however if you drop it from your hands or throw it, of course, it will break (it’s tempered glass, not titanium!)
When it comes to teaching your children in the house, how to handle dinnerware properly also prepares them to be invited over to your friends for dinner. A China set might be a nice inheritance, however, if you use it an everyday chance of an accident happening is quite high! In any case, is quite an unfortunate event, if you drop an expensive piece of China, it is really stressful for children if they end up being the cause of the accident. Using dishes like Corelle which are open stock lets you replace anything that is broken quite easily.
Of course, a point to be noted is that glass is quite sensitive to rapid changes in temperature, if you set a hot dish on a wet or cold surface, it might cause it to crack. And as it is with any other glass container you do not want to be adding any cold liquids to a hot dish in the oven. Corelle is safe to use in the microwave, but don’t think of microwaving popcorn in it. Any main scratches or hard water stains on Corelle can be easily removed with the help of a non-abrasive cleaner.
If you want to preserve fine China, it means that you will have to keep it out of the dishwasher. However, when it comes to Corelle dishes you can easily stack them in your dishwasher closely without having to feel that you might chip the edges. They can be stacked just as easily in your china cabinet. Maybe the decorative lines or patterns might fade slightly with time, in case you wash it extensively in the dishwasher but that’s about it.
And at the end of the day just like our grandmothers loved their CorningWare, so is Corelle as beloved today. Of course, it is a matter of personal preference!
